RAW: Machine Empathy Crash Course

Esplanade Co Ltd

A work-in-progress by CulturFix 

RAW Artists 2019
Playwright / Co-Director: Bani Haykal
Co-Director: Shawn Chua

Advisory: Some coarse language
At CulturFix, all our Virtual Assistants for Artists (VAA) embody our motto: Fix only that which is broken. As our VAA, you will be trained to be empathetic by our state-of-the-art deep-learning model in order to identify the various “broken links” of your assigned artist, and to assist them in the process of re-establishing connections.

CulturFix offers artists the best affective experience in intermediary assistive care.

To participate as our VAA, you will be required to attend our Machine Empathy Crash Course. Please proceed by completing the application and our Control Moderator will be in touch with you.

Machine Empathy Crash Course is part of  The Weight of a Stone in a Pocket, 2019 season of The Studios.

The weight of a stone in a pocket is an uncommon yet familiar affair. It is easy to forget that it is there. Then you reach in and find it again, feeling its weight, textures, ridges and bumps, and remember that there was a reason that it got there in the first place. A pocket, however, is not a permanent place for a stone; it is a vessel, a transitory space. How did the stone get there, and where might it go?

This is the image behind the stories and people of this 2019 season of The Studios.

About The Studios: RAW
RAW is a developmental platform within The Studios for artists to present their works-in-progress. Audiences are encouraged to gain deeper insight into the creative process of our artists through these presentations.
